Host a CWA International Student

Experience the connection, joy, and learning that comes from hosting a Charles Wright Academy international student!

Middle and Upper School international students at Charles Wright are here to experience all that the United States and the Pacific Northwest have to offer. Our generous host families provide a home and family life for students during their academic year. In turn, host families learn about another culture, share their own, and forge relationships with students that can last a lifetime.

Our host families may choose to open their homes for one year or many, and to host the same student or to take on a different student each year. CWA’s International Programs Director matches host families and students to provide the best possible homestay for everyone.

Host families receive a stipend to cover expenses and receive support and education from the School.
